axfrdns-conf(8)		    System Manager's Manual	       axfrdns-conf(8)

NAME
       axfrdns-conf - sets up a	DNS zone-transfer service.

SYNOPSIS
       axfrdns-conf acct logacct D tiny	ip

DESCRIPTION
       axfrdns-conf  creates  a	service	directory D that runs axfrdns(8) under
       tcpserver(1).  The name D must start with a slash and must not  contain
       any special characters.	Normally D is /etc/axfrdns.

       You  can	run the	service	under svscan(8)	by creating a symbolic link in
       the svscan(8) directory:

       ln -s D /service

       The service will	start within five seconds, and will be restarted  upon
       reboot.	You can	use svc(8) to control the service.

       axfrdns-conf arranges for tcpserver(1) to listen	for TCP	connections on
       port 53 of ip.  It sets up D/tcp	in tcprules(1) format to  control  ac-
       cess  to	 axfrdns(8);  initially	all access is denied.  It also sets up
       D/Makefile to compile tcp into tcp.cdb for tcpserver(1).

       axfrdns-conf arranges for axfrdns(8) to chroot to tiny/root and to  run
       under  the  uid and gid of acct.	 The name tiny must start with a slash
       and  must  not  contain	any  special  characters;   normally   it   is
       /etc/tinydns.  The name acct must not contain any special characters.

       axfrdns-conf   creates	an  automatically  rotated  log	 directory  in
       D/log/main.  The	logs are owned by logacct.  The	 corresponding	multi-
       log(8)  processes  run  under the uid and gid of	logacct.  The name lo-
       gacct must not contain any special characters.
